JAMES OLIVER RYE

This is the one and only straight whiskey Indio currently produces. The mash bill is 95% rye and 5% malted barley. It is aged in charred (#4 char) new American white oak barrels. The whiskey is sourced as raw distillate from distilleries in Indiana and Kentucky. It comes in as uncut white spirit at 135 proof. We blend down that raw spirits with water to our “barrel proof” of between 122 and 115 proof. This is described as “Barrel Proof”. Once aged for 2 years we then blend it down to our bottle strength of 100 proof.

GHOST OWL RYE

This is a blend of 2 Rye Whiskeys to make one whiskey. The first whiskey is our James Oliver Straight Rye whiskey. (* see straight whiskey section for mash bill) It makes up 50% of the overall blend. The second whiskey is the same distillate as the JOR but barreled in charred ex-Bordeaux and Burgundy wine barrels and makes up the 50% of the overall blend. The American oak barrels provide a huge vanilla and caramel nose along with the expected rye herbaceous spicy flavor. While the ex-wine barrels provide more subtle vanilla high notes and less caramel aroma, they do provide a wonderful wine finish to an excellent rye profile. Each rye whiskey is aged 2yrs and is blended to perfection and creates the biggest point of difference when compared to JOR. -90 proof

 
 

GHOST OWL BOURBON

A a perfect blend of two distinctive whiskeys: Stampede Whiskey makes up 80% of overall recipe and our 2 yr. old straight corn whiskey rounds out the remaining 20% of overall recipe. A complex 4 year old blended malt whiskey primarily aged in first fill ex-bourbon barrels, and a 2 yr. old single grain corn whiskey aged in imported charred Bordeaux and Burgundy wine barrels from Napa California. Blended to perfection, this whiskey has a warm cereal grain and toasted vanilla nose, a creamy and smooth mouthfeel with a noticeable wine and sherry finish. Both are barreled, aged, blended and bottled in the Pacific Northwest. 90 proof
